KEV D from support band Swine Flu recalls this gig:

"We knew the Subs were playing Glasgow Barrowlands supporting SLF a day or two before so we asked them if they would play Bathgate and we had to put all the money up front, because the owner of the nightclub wasn't into putting punk bands on. Luckily it was a sellout night. I think I may have a VHS tape of the full gig in the loft. The gig was stopped early because two of my mates were dancing around, one jumped up on the other's shoulders and the other guy collapsed on his knees. Paramedics were called and he was stretchered away. I was in the support band Swine Flu (we were awful). The singer Welshy and I went on to join External Menace for a bit. Craig went on to form Critikill. I went on to form Auslander.
Cheers Kev
